: Three year old American import Windicatorr gave nothing else a hope in the last of the night on Friday when he showed brilliant speed to spear across from his wide gate and lead throughout in the Class 5 over 1050 metres.
Ridden Tiago Pereira and prepared by Craig Marshall, Windicatorr clocked 1.03.3 which was very creditable on the night with Power Ballad going 1.03.2 in the Class 3 early in the evening.
By the speedy Will He Shine (USA), Windicatorr looks capable of measuring up to Class 3 at least for owners Thomas Poon and Poon Chi Keung.
Riding honors for the weekend went to Manoel Nunes with four winners over the two days.
Nunes won the Class 1 on Friday night on Macau's latest sand star Luck Of Smiling who made it win number six on the all weather and smashed the track record for the 1050 metres previously held by Good Control.
Luck of Smiling a New Zealand bred son of Elusive City (USA) rang up 1.00.8 for the trip clipping .03 off Good Controls old standard.
Trained by Alan Tam, Luck Of Smiling's record now boasts seven wins, four seconds and two thirds from the geldings 13 starts.
After Friday's success the four year old has now amassed over $2.2 million in prizemoney.
Nunes was in superb form on Saturday's turf card winning on Carlo in the Class 3 & 4 over 1800 metres and Public Benefit in the Class 3 over 1100 metres for Alan Tam, and blew the opposition away on Giant Steps with a six lengths victory in the Class 2 & 3 over 1500 metres for trainer Louis Ho.
The win gave Louis Ho a double on the day with Chanak reveling in the heavy conditions early on under Roger Yu to win Class 5 over 1500 metres.
